Honor View 20 – The First Phone With an In-screen A 48MP Camera
Honor View 20 which is also known as the Honor V20 in China is the worldâ€™s first 48-megapixel phone. It is the first smartphone to offer a 48 megapixel camera, taking it a notch ahead of Nokiaâ€™s 808 PureView and Lumia 1020 from years ago. Both of those devices had a 41-megapixel camera on them.
If there is any smartphone manufacturer with the expertise to pull off outstanding photography that beats what Nokia has with the 808 and 1020, it is Huawei. The Chinese tech company recently set the camera phone space ablaze with the camera on theÂ Huawei P20 Pro.
What Is 48 Megapixel Camera Bringing?
We all know it isnâ€™t about the megapixels but what you do with them, so what is it to get excited about a 48 megapixel camera?
On its own, probably nothing special other than a large sensor. But if done the way Nokia did with the 808 PureView and Lumia 1020, it can produce not just great details but also superb effects like Bokeh.
I keep looking back the Nokiaâ€™s 41-megapixel camera with nostalgia. For one, they pulled Bokeh off so effortlessly, not to mention the level of details they produced in their photos.
We donâ€™t have long to wait to see how well Huawei has worked out the technology in the Honor View 20 / Honor V20.
